Why is this training important?

Gain the knowledge and understanding needed to recognise and prevent bribery from happening in a workplace, and how to create and implement an anti-bribery policy and risk assessment.

By raising awareness in this area, the employer and employee will both greatly benefit from undertaking such training. Bribery is a crime that both parties may engage in, both the giver of money or items and the receiver. It is therefore vital that staff are trained in the risks and implications of such behaviour, and also educated in how to deal with such possibilities in order to protect themselves.

Assessment type

Upon completion of the course, learners will complete an end of learning assessment consisting of 10 questions.
